This quote is displayed inside Halla Library, reminding us all that “The only true equalizers in the world are books; the only treasure-house open to all corners is a library; the only wealth which will not decay is knowledge; the only jewel which you can carry beyond the grave is wisdom” (by J.A. Langford).
